EPA Scraps Controversial Pesticide Testing Program

The Children's Environmental Exposure Research Study would have paid families $970 to videotape how spraying insecticides in their homes affected infants over two years.


Um... I don't really know what to say. Pesticide is poison... Do we really need to verify the fact that poison is dangerous to infants?

"Information from the study was intended to help EPA better protect children," Johnson said on Friday. "EPA will continue to pursue the goal of protecting childrens' health."

Keep your eyes open folks, next time they might study the effects of a 9mm bullet on school children.

Maybe i shouldn't blame these folks for relying so heavily on religion, because they are clearly so poor at science.
